Trump Threatens White House Protesters With ‘Vicious Dogs And Most Ominous Weapons’


Trump Threatens White House Protesters With ‘Vicious Dogs And Most Ominous Weapons’

President Trump took to Twitter Saturday morning to praise the Secret Service for their handling of the protests outside of the White House and threatened “so-called ‘protesters’” with “vicious dogs” and “ominous weapons” if they had breached the fence outside the White House, where members of the US Secret Service were “waiting for action”.

The president, seemingly with glee, spelled out some of the deterrents deployed by the Secret Service against the demonstrators and spoke about how things may have escalated if the protesters “came close to breaching the fence” of the White House.

“Great job last night at the White House by the U.S. Secret Service. They were not only totally professional, but very cool. I was inside, watched every move, and couldn’t have felt more safe,” Trump tweeted.

“They let the “protesters” scream & rant as much as they wanted, but whenever someone got too frisky or out of line, they would quickly come down on them, hard – didn’t know what hit them,” he wrote. “The front line was replaced with fresh agents, like magic. Big crowd, professionally organized, but nobody came close to breaching the fence.”

“If they had they would have been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen,” he warned. “That’s when people would have been really badly hurt, at least. Many Secret Service agents just waiting for action. ‘We put the young ones on the front line, sir, they love it, and good practice.’ As you saw last night, they were very cool & very professional. Never let it get out of hand. Thank you!”

Trump went on to falsely accuse D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser of not letting Metropolitan Police get involved. According to CNN, D.C. police were on the scene in addition to several other law enforcement agencies.

“On the bad side, the D.C. Mayor, Muriel Bowser, who is always looking for money & help, wouldn’t let the D.C. Police get involved. ‘Not their job.’ Nice!” he wrote.

In another Saturday tweet, Trump seemed to invite a possible violent clash between his supporters and George Floyd protesters outside the White House on Saturday night, writing, “Tonight, I understand, is MAGA NIGHT AT THE WHITE HOUSE???”

On Friday, Trump denounced protesters in Minneapolis as “THUGS” and threatened to “assume control” of the city before ominously warning: “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

Trump has long urged law enforcement officers to be rougher with protesters or those they’ve detained, saying during a speech to law enforcement officers in 2017 that they shouldn’t be “too nice.”

“When you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over?” the president continued. “Like, don’t hit their head, and they’ve just killed somebody. Don’t hit their head? I said, ‘You can take the hand away, OK?’” Trump said in the address on Long Island in New York.
